Walking by the lake

General

  • Wild camping pitches by a stream, fishing lake and woods
  • Exeter, Dartmoor and Teignmouth beach within a 20-minute drive
  • Access to showers and toilets 10 minutes' walk away

Thinking of dabbling in a bit of wild camping, but not sure whether you’ll really take to the simple life? Sedgewell Farm could well be the place to give it a whirl.

The basic pitches here are just that – no bathrooms, no lighting and no electricity, although there is a gentle nod to luxury in the form of a picnic table. The only running water down here is the little stream that runs between the grass pitches and the woods that lie beyond (a bridge gives you easy access to miles of woodland walks, one of which leads to the reward of a pint in the pub).

With a gorgeous backdrop of forest and fishing lake, it’s a fab location for those who love to strip life back to its bare necessities. The great news for those who decide they were fond of creature comforts after all (or groups whose opinions differ) is that wild campers are welcome to break away at any point and avail themselves of the farm’s main facilities, which include a playground, washing machine, showers and proper loos.

And further excellent news for all guests… the farm’s handy location puts it within a 20-minute drive of the beaches at Teignmouth and Dawlish, city wanderings in Exeter and rural rambles in the Dartmoor National Park.

Beautiful location, fields not v wild or flat - woodlands lovely09/08/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAndrew G.Confirmed

  • Primitive grass tent site (wild, lake view)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    - Beautiful woods at the bottom of the field with a lovely stream running through it. We felt very cut off (in a good way).
    - Columbo was very friendly and obliging with helping ferry bags etc. up and down the hill!
    - Nice to have firewood able to be delivered, made the campfires very easy and fun
    - Access to toilets etc. when we needed it.
    - Boat on the little lake was a nice touch.
    - Nice footpath over the river leading to a pub (cash only, takeaway only, opens at 6pm)

    Disliked: 

    - For wild camping we'd expected each pitch to feel a bit more secluded, especially for the price, but mostly it was just some (quite steeply sloping) fields, with tents pitched up quite close to each other. (The woods were lovely, though damp when it rained!)
    - The facilities were ok but nothing special and a bit cramped - they're being renovated for next year apparently.

    Everything. Columbo was very helpful on the arrival. The environment is perfect for a chilled weekend. The stream and the little lake gives a very good vibe to the place. The spots in the woods looked great and calm. Shops are only 10min away.

    Disliked: 

    Only handicap as already mention is the noise coming from the main road overnight. I would expect it to be quiet overnight but it's surprisingly busy. But not enough to not give the 5*

From the manager...

Really glad you enjoyed it, free night awaits your return.

    Gorgeous location, friendly staff and polite other campers. We pitched up near a gorgeous stream which was peaceful at night and the dog loved it! We chose the wild camping pitch so a ten minute uphill walk from the toilet and shower but this was good exercise for us all!

Good first "wild camping" experience08/21/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Primitive grass tent site (wild, lake view)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    I love that this campsite has a semi-wild camping option, as it gave me a good first trial of wild camping with my son on my own. Jason (aka Columbo) was very accommodating, taking us up and down the hill with our camping gear when needed, and even unbegrudgingly offered a tow to those who chose to attempt the drive down the hill with their own car, getting stuck on the way up. There was a beautiful little river to conveniently pitch up next to.

Local attractions

Having given your walking shoes a warm-up on the woodland walks by the site, put them through their paces with a lengthier amble in the Dartmoor National Park, 20 minutes from the farm. Walks here range from gentle circular strolls to more challenging scrambles; cycle trails, horse riding, climbing, kayaking, fishing and wild swimming are among the other outdoorsy options here.

Or perhaps you like your fresh air with a hint of sea spray? You’re within easy reach of some fab beaches around here: try Teignmouth, with its Victorian pier, lido and crazy golf, or head to Dawlish for a sandy stretch with dog-friendly area. Torquay’s Living Coasts, Paignton Zoo Environmental Park and Crealy Adventure Park are all less than half an hour away too.

It’s worth making time to take a wander around Exeter too, to see its gothic cathedral, follow the city walls trail and delve beneath the streets for a tour of the underground passages.

Must see

  • Living Coasts (14.1 kilometers)
  • Buckfast Abbey (16.3 kilometers)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (16.6 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Compton Castle (11.9 kilometers)
